First Day Back
By Mary L. Bushong
1 Michael had been dreading this day ever since the first day of summer vacation. It had hung over his summer break like a big black cloud. He had managed to ignore it for a while, but that was impossible to do now.
2 Just last week his mom had taken him shopping to get new clothes, shoes, notebooks, and paper. His pencils were newly sharpened, and his assortment of pens ready to use. He couldn't help but wonder - where had the summer gone?
3 Michael walked down the hallway with his backpack slung over one shoulder. He worked his way through the crowd of other kids to check the lists of names outside the door of each room in his grade. Finally, he found it on the third list. He would be in Mrs. Sweeting's room. She was new this year, and he didn't know anything about her. There was only one thing he was looking forward to, and that was seeing his best friend, Zack. He hadn't seen him since school ended, and he had missed him.
4 Michael walked into his classroom. His teacher was at the front of the room sorting some papers. Behind her, he saw she had written her name on the board. He hoped her name was an indication of her personality.
5 Michael looked around the room. The desks were all arranged in rows. Some kids were talking to friends, and some were emptying their backpacks into their desks. Finally, in the middle of one row sat the boy Michael had been looking for. "Zack!" Michael said.
